Panissa[edit]

Can anyone tell us more about the panissa of Vercelli? There is a Ligurian dish of the same name on the Italian wikipedia [1], but it is made with chickpeas rather than beans.

To answer myself, Cookery at vercelli.net has it. It includes salame.

Naming conventions[edit]

Regarding a possible local dialect name for Vercelli: please note that wikipedia as a naming convention; the convention regarding geographic names can be found at: Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names). The English wikipedia chooses the most common name in English for its articles and this is by far "Vercelli". Furthermore the Piemontèis wikipedia uses "Vërsèj" (pms:Vërsèj) to name the corresponding article in the local dialect version of wikipedia and there are no reliable sources to be found which prefer the use of "Varsei" over "Vërsèj". noclador (talk) 21:05, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Page locked for three days[edit]

As the edit-war over the city's name, alternative name, alternative names, etc. shows no signs of stopping, I've reverted the article to the state it was in before the edit war began, and full-protected the page for three days. I invite the editors who were involved in the content dispute here to discuss their differences over a pot of vermicelli and to work out an acceptable compromise per WP:DISCUSS and WP:CONSENSUS. Let's come to an agreement as the reasonable people we are, so that when the protection expires we can edit the article to reflect consensus and all go home happy (or, at least, not sad), instead of resuming the edit-war and calling in blocks. - The Bushranger One ping only 04:29, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Two weeks and no responses... guess it wasn't important after all. Good. Everyone enjoy their noodles. Stalwart111 01:02, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Request for comment (sort of...)[edit]

Vermicelli, as suggested, to aid WP:CIVIL conversation.

In line with my suggestion at WP:ANI, I thought I'd establish an RFC to allow editors to comment on the question as to whether multiple alternate language/dialect names should be included in the article lede. However, I've not used the {{rfc}} template and have instead opted for a more informal discussion in the hope that this can be resolved fairly quickly in line with The Bushranger's 3-day lock. If not, we can always go for a proper RFC. So with that in mind I have tried to summarise, as well as I am able, what seem to be the key areas of dispute.

1. The question of what the article should be titled seems to have been resolved and there seems to no longer be a desire to move the article to an alternate local language/dialect name. Sufficient redirects exist to assist to bring anyone who searches for the subject using those alternate names to this article. If I'm wrong and this hasn't been resolved, please feel free to suggest as much.
2. There is an ongoing dispute as to whether some/more/all of those alternate names should be listed after the title name to clarify that some may refer to the subject by other names, eg:
Vercelli About this sound listen  (Vërsèj in Piedmontese, Varsei in Vercellese, X in X dialect/language, etc)
3. There also seems to be some disagreement as to whether or not the alternate names in question (in whatever language) should be verified by reliable sources and, if so, whether proposed sources are sufficient.

If there are other points of contention/disputation, please feel free to list those here too. Stalwart111 08:10, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
